Greens councillor Katie Milne confronted Brisbane horticulturalist and arboricultural consultant Marian Hammond during ‘pruning’ work at Chinderah Tavern’s iconic fig tree last Thursday.

Ms Milne complained about excessive cutting and improper work health and safety precautions.

An obviously irritated Ms Hammond dismissed Ms Milne’s passionate protestations and continued to supervise the removal of ‘dangerous’ tree limbs.

Local arborist Luke McVeigh said the presence of Ms Milne, interested locals and media representatives kept workers from removing an even larger part of the tree’s canopy.
